Johnny Manziel Lists Pat White Among Most Entertaining CFB Quarterbacks of All-Time



Pat White

Anyone college football fan who remembers the early to mid 2000’s will never forget how electrifying WVU’s Pat White was. And that apparently includes a former Heisman winner and fellow college football legend.

In an interview with House of Highlights, Manziel was asked to name his top five most entertaining college quarterbacks. Johnny Football didn’t waste too much time before naming White. He placed the Mountaineer star second on his list behind only Cam Newton.

Joining White and Newton was Baker Mayfield, Joe Burrow and the most surprising, yet very deserving selection of Colt Brennan.

As Mountaineers Nation is well aware, White is widely recognized as one of the most explosive and accomplished players in college football history. While at West Virginia, he was named Big East Offensive Player of the Year back-to-back seasons (2006-07). He led them to a 35-8 record and became the first quarterback to start and win four bowl games in program history.

Statistically, White threw for 6,051 yards and 56 touchdowns and ran for 4,480 yards and 47 scores on the ground, which set a then-NCAA record for rushing yards by a quarterback. White was honored a first-team All-Big East (2006-08) player three out of his four years as a starter in college. He was inducted into the West Virginia University Sports Hall of Fame in 2018.

Following his record-setting career at West Virginia, White did receive a chance at playing in the NFL after being selected by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played in 13 games as a rookie and spent part of the 2013 season with Washington. White also spent time with the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League (2011) and the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (2014).
